At Mayo Clinic, your physical and mental health is our priority. As a trainee, you’ll experience a robust wellness curriculum that includes monthly core lectures on topics related to health, wellness, personal finance and resiliency, as well as regularly scheduled wellness activities and events.

You’ll also have access to:

  • Multiple fitness challenges each year, with broad participation by all residents and the residency leadership team, with prizes that help motivate (first choice of rotation schedules, extra pager-free days, gift cards and workout equipment).
  • Access to the Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center, a state-of-the-art fitness facility on both campuses (downtown and at Saint Marys), available at a low cost to trainees through payroll deduction, with lower fees for increased use.
  • Prioritization of trainee physical and mental health care, including time off clinical duties to attend appointments.
